ESO Solutions, a provider of software solutions for hospitals, health systems, EMS agencies, and fire departments, has confirmed that it fell victim to a ransomware attack in September 2023 that resulted in file encryption. ESO Solutions identified suspicious activity within its network on September 28, 2023, and took immediate action to isolate its systems and prevent further unauthorized access to its network.

Third-party digital forensics experts were engaged to investigate the attack and determine the extent of the unauthorized activity. The forensics team confirmed on October 23, 2023, that the attackers had access to parts of its network containing the personal and protected health information of 2.7 million individuals. The information compromised in the incident included names, dates of birth, injury type, injury date, treatment date, treatment type, and, in some cases, Social Security numbers. The attack was reported to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and ESO Systems has worked cooperatively with the FBI during its investigation. A ransom demand was issued by the attackers; however, ESO Systems was able to recover the encrypted files from backups.
